Ides of March, a day traditionally of bad luck and this year that seemed to be the case. My sister twisted her back and had to take her first day off work in three years. My friend was crashed into by a snowboarder and had her leg broken. My big grandson fell into our pond and was very surprised and very cold. Most worrying though was my little Sam being admitted to hospital with suspected meningitis, a traumatic period for us all. Thankfully he is okay as you can see in the photo above. Saz blogged about the events here. She still hasn't got Sam's blood test results but we are sure he hasn't got the dreaded illness.
Tomorrow I am off to Country Roads Quilters and we are having a workshop with Angela Daymond, "Stitching for Texture: Spend a day extending your stitiching and quilting repertoire by
exploring both traditional and contemporary quilting stitches to create
texture and line in your work. Learn how to mix hand and machine
stitching for unique effect. You will go home with all your samples made
into a stitched book. Hand and machine stitching workshop" Sounds good doesn't it? I'm looking forward to it enormously.
